Total International (Lokal). Boaz Barkan & Andreas Liebmann

How can international artists deal with the fact that their routines of work often are not environmentally sound? How can performers at distance come together in a common space of imagination?
“Total International (Local)“is a dance between colleagues who have never met to work in a physical space. The performance takes place simultaneously in Denmark and Switzerland, and all performers are always present – two of them physically.

The performance examines international production conditions in the arts, which are based on unconditional mobility and a longing to explore and discover. Conditions that even before the pandemic were urgent to question, and since March have become even more important to address.
